NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
306 am CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Short term...(today through Monday night) 
issued at 306 am CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Models show an upper level ridge building over the Central Plains, 
sliding east across the middle Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys 
late today into Sunday. This will keep conditions dry and mild 
across the region through the weekend. Winds will shift back to 
the south on Sunday, helping temperatures climb into the upper 
70s. Clouds will increase Sunday night ahead of our next weather 
system. 


Models in are good agreement on timing of moving a cold front 
across the pah forecast area Monday into Monday night. 
Precipitation chances will move into mainly western portions of 
the area by 18z Monday, and went with chance pops across southeast 
Missouri and southwest Illinois. European model (ecmwf) generates some light quantitative precipitation forecast 
farther east than GFS and NAM, so included slight chance pops 
across the rest of the fa. Chances will increase through the day, 
with good chance pops across all but our far east counties Monday 
afternoon, and across the entire area Monday night. GFS and NAM 
both generate some cape across the entire region Monday and Monday 
night, with Li's of -1 to -3 through the day Monday, so continued 
to include slight chances of thunderstorms. 


Long term...(tuesday through friday) 
issued at 306 am CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


The extended forecast period appears to be fairly quiet early 
on...but the signal for precipitation looks to be fairly strong for 
Thursday night through Friday. 


In the meantime, we will see a front exiting the area on Tuesday. 
There is a small possibility of lingering probability of precipitation in western Kentucky early 
Tuesday morning as the front exits. Although we might see a few 
degree cool down behind this front...it still looks like highs in 
the lower 70s will be likely on Tuesday. 


An upper level ridge will start to build into the region late 
Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure at the sfc will allow 
for winds to be easterly which will keep US in the low 70s. 


Our warm up will occur on Thursday when winds become southerly as 
the sfc high moves east. In fact, winds will likely become rather 
gusty. Meanwhile, we will be watching a cold front advancing from 
the west. Models indicate that most of the area should probably stay 
dry on Thursday. If precipitation occurs, it would be most likely 
across our western fringes. However, the 00z and 12z European model (ecmwf) are in 
very good agreement that the best chances for precipitation will be 
Thursday evening/overnight and into Friday. GFS ensembles also 
support this timing. However, the 00z European model (ecmwf) came in with a lot less 
quantitative precipitation forecast and much faster with timing. Therefore, will not get too carried 
away with probability of precipitation since this system is still not totally resolved well 
by the models. But, looking back on several runs of the GFS, it does 
seem to be the most consistent at this time. 


Precipitation should be exiting the area late in the day on 
Friday...which will make for dry conditions for Friday night into 
Saturday.

Aviation... 
issued at 1141 PM CDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


High pressure at the surface and aloft will keep conditions VFR 
throughout the region for the entire 06z taf period. The outflow 
cirrus shield will shift east by morning, and some cu development 
will be possible for the afternoon and evening. Winds will be from 
the northeast through the period. Speeds may pick up to near 
10kts in the afternoon.
